Camp Terrier – Junior Lifeguarding

Thanks for a great summer! Check back in November 2019 for information regarding Summer 2020.
Junior Lifeguarding has a strong focus on developing both swimming and lifesaving skills. Participants will be introduced to in-water rescues, use of lifeguarding equipment, and shadowing real lifeguards on the job. The program will also strive to teach self-confidence, team work, and leadership. Note: This is not a learn-to-swim program.
